Putting a Deposit Return Scheme in your Pocket with Blockchain: WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2019 Retrospective


See Related event

The disruptive powers of blockchain are widely reported but we’re often left confused by the terminology, applications and contradictions. Earlier this month, at WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2019, CryptoCycle’s CTO & Co-Founder, Tony McGurk, considerately kicked off his presentation with an explanation of the relevant parts of a blockchain that didn’t leave our audience scratching their heads. Tony went on to outline some of the challenges faced by deposit return schemes and demonstrated how Reward4Waste is a perfect example of how serialisation and blockchain technology can benefit a DRS and be used to drive meaningful and significant behavioural changes in the circular economy and wider supply chains.
